THIS WEEK ON Y&R: A Hero Will Fall! How Will Paul's Shooting Cause A Ripple Effect in Genoa City?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

This week on The Young and the Restless the stage has been set for some stunning revelations, heartbreak and danger!

On yesterday’s episode of Y&R Christine (Lauralee Bell) admitted to Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) that she wanted to create something that was a testament to her love with Paul (Doug Davidson) and she hope’s it’s  not to late! Of course, she is referring to having Paul’s baby!  So is Christine indeed pregnant?

And that dovetails right into this week’s CBS Promo for the number one series which in the voice-over reveals the tag lines, “A hero will fall … his life on the line  … and his attacker goes on the run!”   So here’s what sets this up:  Avery (Jessica Collins) is being held at gunpoint by Austin (Matthew Atkinson), and Dylan (Steve Burton) finds his girlfriend in trouble and fights for the gun with Austin, only it goes off and Paul is in the line of fire! Now Christine is worried her husband won’t make it, as Dylan looks outside the ICU window, and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scot) makes a heartfelt plea at Paul’s bedside! Meanwhile, Austin tells Summer (Hunter King) he is going on the run, and that she doesn’t know the truth about why he went after Avery!   Summer tells him she want to go on the lam with him!

So putting two and two together what do we know?  We know Y&R teased a major tragedy would happen this summer.  We also know that Corbin Bernsen is set to reprise his role of Father Todd, Paul’s brother.  And we know that Steve Burton revealed on a recent talk show in Nashville that a paternity secret will come to light this month!

Watch the Y&R promo after the jump! Then let us know is this where we will learn Dylan is actually Paul and Nikki’s bio-son? What do you think of the storyline and the set-up? What do you hope is the outcome of Paul getting shot and Austin going on the run?

Who cares??? From the glaring lights to that hokey hold up story I just sat opened mouth at the ridiculousness of this entire storyline. No doubt this Austin character will stick around and be someone’s son they had no idea they had. I’m over this whole mess. It was like watching the GH relish wars. At least they were slightly more entertaining than the garbage on this show. After all these years i truly don’t care what happens on this show any longer. How can you make the number 1 show out of only 4 so unwatchable???

Apparently GH nearly met its demise under her control. A great many long-time characters met their demise during her reign, which is why I’m a little nervous hearing about the Paul situation.

This show is an absolute mess. I never thought it would be possible for Y&R to fall this far so fast. These writers need to go, as well as JFP, who brought them in. Awful, just awful on so many levels.

Please CBS & Sony, get rid of this regime.

Sorry, but the Paul/Dylan father/son thing is the best this show can think of…got to tie Paul and Nikki together as well so Nic and Vic can divorce for like the 100th time!!!

They can’t kill off Paul’s character. I came back to the Y & R because of Dylan / Steve Burton. He is an amazing actor and playing Dylan allows him to have more of a range. Christine this time around has been a little jealous of Nikki and Paul’s relationship. I would much rather have Dylan as Paul’s son than Ian’s. Ian as a father would be the worst. Paul deserves to have a son!!

jonboy
Guest

Wish I could agree with you re Steve Burton, but I can’t. For me he’s way too one-dimensional of an actor, both as Jason and Dylan. I don’t think his addition has aided in the popularity of the show. But, hey, if you like him that’s ok. Won’t put you down for it.

Boy you’re so right! Austin has been on the show 2 minutes and another psychoagenda playing storyline. Lets see…Stitch, soon to be Jenna, Austin, Leslie’s to Ian, Barton, Ian, Mariah, Kelly all have hidden agenda stories…Sickening plotted crap. JFP isn’t thinking of YR but trying to create her “own” soap sprinkling in very few fan faves and resting on YR’s shirttails, ignoring history, making her own and most importantly DISRESPECTING Bill Bell’s mastery of storytelling!!! But it’s not nobody’s fault from SonySK, JFPJeanShelley, AngMcD/Margot/CBS…all are innocent while the ratings are tanking showing proof…DISGUSTING been watching 41 years, LMLMAB was bad… Read more »

How long has this thing been on? I started watching like six months into it when I heard Jeanne Cooper (one of my faves) was joining and have watched since then. Twice I abandoned ship. First when they recast Jill with Jess Walton and second when Maria Arena started rewriting history. They better do some quick work or I’m outa here again.

Paul has been on the show for a long time as one said either 35 years or so and they should not allow to die. Paul has finally got a storyline with Dylan as his son who he still does not know, and Nikki is the mother showing many years ago Paul & Nikki were in loved and we should she this side of the story instead of writing him out the way they did to Cassie who grew up on the show now they brought her back as Mariah to make trouble. These writers all they do is focus… Read more »

I have a feeling Paul will survive. What would be the point of bringing Dylan out as his son if he’s dead? I don’t really feel they are focusing on the African American cast. I am enjoying the Neil/Hilary/Leslie story line, but Lily and Devon need to be brought down a peg or two from their high horse. It’s to the point that I literally can’t even stand to look at Lily anymore. And Leslie really needs to lose the phony wigs. Who would trust an attorney who wears wigs? If I was on one of her juries that, in… Read more »

So now Summer is going to run off with the man who just shot Paul and held her Aunt Avery hostage? After just being duped by Ian Ward? I don’t understand this show.

It’s because Summer was brainwashed by Ian without her knowing it. Wild guess, of course….

Im scratching my head too. Where is the Character development. I mean just a few months ago she was duped by Ian & swore to find herself and make better decisions. And now shes gonna run off with a guy who just shot the chief of police and kidnapped her Aunt. I could buy it if this story had actually been fleshed out and played the beats. But she’s been hanging out with him on screen for TWO WEEKS. Seriously YR. This show frustrates me. But the GCAC has Lobster Mac and Cheese so at least that made my day.… Read more »

I get what you are saying, but if they had taken their time to build a real romance between them, then viewers would be complaining it was going too slow. However I have a different take on it,—having been a young woman once myself I don’t find the quickness of her affection for this guy strange. At that age one tends to think with their emotions and just finding out the guy likes the same movies as you do was enough to convince you he was your soul mate. To me Summer is just acting her age— And at that… Read more »

Especially when it comes to Nikki. Ugh. The Nikki I remember from the 80’s & 90’s took NO MESS from the Great Victor Newman. I mean I was loving her after she finally left him & was doing her own thing. I still have childhood memories of her fighting with her Crazy Maid Veronica/Sarah in the barn or her AMAZING friendship with Bobby Marsino. I hate that so many of the recent regimes keep acting as if Nikki Newman can only exist within Victor’s orbit. Damn some of my fave YR Storylines were NIKKI’S stories where she drove story.

Ridiculously stupid, lazy, plotted writing so Summer could lose her virginity!!!…shameful how JFP treats women & young women in story. Always “reformed” or “off with a technicality” reason to keep, rapists, murders, lowlifes on canvas while not knowing how to produce good, heartfelt characters but leaving them in limbo.

So this is the summer storyline for “Summer” on the run, generic bs…Bill always had a good summer story planned…while Noah, Kyle (nowhere in sight), Abby (stuck in Tyler hell), having no real story…”young & restless” doesn’t exist nowdays.

I think Father Todd is going to be on the show to pray and support his brother but I highly doubt Paul will die. This may be the incident that Ian tells Dylan he better go and be with is father who is “Dying”.

They are not going to kill DD off JFP and the writers are going to make Dylan a hero we will find out he is Paul’s son and he will donate part of his liver to save his Dad. Now she has tied SB/Dylan to the two longest veterans on the show Paul & Nikki. Mission Accomplished.

@ Patrick I get what you are saying about Paul & Nikki I do not know what it is but Steve Burton/character on this show drives me nuts as a good shrink would say something about this actor makes you lose all reason. He has never personally done anything to me from what I understand nice personable fellow when I see him on my screen I just go nuts. Not very mature I know!

I honestly think that this storyline will somehow lead to the revelation that Paul is Dylan’s bio Dad. After all, Paul was with Nikki at the commune all that time, so it certainly is plausible. Time will tell.

Summer is beautiful, has two “Dads” who adore her and have a billion dollars, a grandfather who treats her like royalty, why does she feel the need to run off with someone she has just met who harassed Avery and shot Paul? Dumb!

Mary SF
Guest

Paul is going need some kind of organ donation, perhaps a kidney or a liver ,so Todd comes to town to be tested but isn’t a match– Dylan feeling somewhat responsible for Paul’s condition will get tested a lo and behold he is a perfect match– someone will put two and two together and realize that Dylan and Paul are father and son. Come on this is so obvious you would have to be not watching at all not to see this story line coming a mile a way.

I think Mary is right. However, Paul has LOTS of other KNOWN relatives —- sister Patti, daughter Heather, AWOL other brother Steve (never mentioned anymore but he was on the show decades ago and married one of the Brooks sisters), AWOL mother Mary —– why does Dylan suddenly have to become his son? I never watched GH and knew nothing about Steve Burton before he showed up on Y&R.

I’ve been known to be wrong from time to time on these things but I really don’t see Doug leaving. If so, his departure has been keep quiet. I think the promo is set that way to attract viewers/drama. Austin or Courtney could end up dead.

Y&R is horrible at writing high drama, so the shooting will be rather lackluster lol ..
A shooting will not get Y&R out of the staledom it’s in it needs better couples, the couples are so lame!

A shooting is not all that exciting because it is not murder which would hold mystery, suspense etc..
Paul will be shot and all will pray and all will be OK ..

Can’t Jill W. Pheleps think of anything else but Steve Burton copying Jason Morgen. He already is wearing a black leather jacket. Now he rescue Avery. When is CBS going to get smart and fire her. She has already lost a lot of talent from the show. Now she is showcasing Steve Burton. What a joke.

It is more than obvious what will happen;
Paul will need blood or some such thing, and Dylan will be the one to give and then it will come to light that Paul is Dylan’s father.. another DNA boring thing..
The shooting is all about Paul and Dylan being father and son..

Paul is one of my favorites but unfortunately this means we have to see icky Cricket more than we need to. I think Summer going on the run would be interesting she needs to have more story than being a footnote to everyone else’s.

We all know why Cricket/Christine is on this show. I dont enjoy watching her, either. Something happened to my favorite show and it is not as good as it was.

Paul will die but his toupee will live on. JFP will put it on a dummy sitting at Paul’s desk. Kevin and Harding will refer to it as The Chief and Kevin will lament often about how The Chief doesn’t talk to him any more. When alone we’ll see mysterious hands typing orders from the Chief on a keyboard. It will be revealed that the orders are coming from Paul’s ghost and he can’t rest in peace until JFP is fired. Then suddenly Paul, Adam, Billy Miller, Emme Rylan, Deedee and Phyllis return from the dead and the past year… Read more »

The only surprise is it was Paul that was shot, and not Dylan. Of course this will lead to the reveal of Paul as Dylan’s dad. I thought it would be Dylan that was shot, and that would reveal that Ian is not his father. As far as the rest of the story, just when you think Summer cannot get any stupider, TPTB make her stupider. Sad, because Ms. King is a fantastic actress. And Austin? Other than a wooden-at-best performance, he’s been on for 5 seconds, has zero chemistry with Summer (not Ms. King’s fault), and wants revenge on… Read more »

This whole gripping, edge of your seat “cooking show commenter” story has been so spectacular in its complexity from the get-go who would have thought it could get any better and yet somehow it did in that instant when Paul showed up with Joey Buchanan and a meter maid to diffuse a hostage situation.

This plot sounds horrible!! The only bright side — Maybe we’ll get a scene with Mary Williams. Paul’s devoted mother has been AWOL for too long and glaring absent at significant moments for the Williams family for the past 5 years (daughter Patty killing people and slipping into insanity; grandson Ricky also going insane, killing people, and murdered by Paul). Yes, I know that the actress who played Mary for decades died in the past couple of years but that doesn’t mean Mary had to die.

As far as I’m concerned Y&R is on its way out. Very sad to me because it’s always been my favorite until the last few years. So many things have happened.

I can’t believe I’m commenting on this ridiculous show, but I’m surprised that no one has predicted that it wasn’t Austin who shot Paul, but Dylan. Of course this doesn’t preclude Paul being Dylan’s father, probably would make it more likely. Maybe Dylan has been possessed by Ricky’s spirit!

I have always thought that Dylan was actually Paul and Nikki’s son. I also think that Ian’s ex-wife was in possession of that information and that she tried to sell that Info to Dylan months ago.

Regarding Austin….not interested in his story at all.

Also…Paul is an integral/indespensible part of the Young and the Restless and he should be written to survive with a liver transplant from his Son, Dylan.

I don’t want Paul to leave the show. To many original stars are leaving and we can’t loose another one. I can’t wait for Sharon’s secret to come out. Nick is Summer’s farther, and it’s about time Sharon gets hers. Plus I can’t stand watching Jack play daddy.

Once upon a time, Y&R was CLASSIC soap opera at it’s finest!!!!! For example:
1. Wonderfully established core families (the Abbotts being my all-time FAVORITE!!!!!).
2. The wonderfully classic Katherine/Jill rivalry.
3. Breathtaking romance.
4. Very realistic friendships.
5. Wonderfully complex and multi-dimensional characters.

Now…here is what we are currently stuck with:
1. The Steve Burton Hour (gag gag gag!!!!!).
2. Ridiculous and endless baby mama/baby daddy drama.
3. An ENDLESS revolving door of recasting.
4. Longtime characters acting clueless, self-righteous and (EVEN MORE!!!!!) stupid.
5. Newbie characters that NO ONE cares about…at all.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS DESERVES W-A-Y BETTER!!!!!!!!!!

Jay, sadly, I, too, can get through Y&R rather quickly, fastforwarding through the boring dead weight. What you said about the Tyler chump “sleepwalking” had me laughing out loud. 🙂 He and Steve Burton must have the same acting coach.

PS: I may have gone overboard in an earlier post about all the characters that bore me, but Dylan and Tyler are definitely on the list!

Peace, Brother…

James…dude…you have every right to go overboard here!!!!! I feel the same way. Man, oh, man…the late and great William J. Bell is probably (and even more sadly) rolling over in his grave thinking about what has horribly happened to his wonderful and epic soap that he created back in the day. Very sad. And, dude…by the way…my all-time FAVORITE Y&R characters are (and ALWAYS will be) Jack and (especially!!!!!) Nina…HOLLA!!!!! One last thing for now: Your ‘acting coach’ comment totally cracked me up…LOL!!!!!

Peace, bro.

Thanks, Jay! You are right again about the formerly “epic soap.” And I agree with you about Jack and Nina. Tricia Cast is a great actress. We were mentioning Genie Francis the other day. When she first joined Y&R, she was paired with Jack. I actually liked them as a couple, but then that fell by the wayside. But maybe you felt differently about that. I can definitely see the rooting value in Jack and Nina. And speaking of acting, Peter Bergman, now that’s an actor! And I enjoyed Jack’s friendship with Adam, plus the fact that both men are… Read more »

James…hey, dude!!!!! Some other thoughts and all of my own: 1. Don’t get me wrong…I have been a BIG FAN of Genie Francis ever since her GH days back in the day. But…when she joined the cast of Y&R a few years ago (in 2011) to play the role of Genevieve…the character of Genevieve had me HAPPILY HOOKED (or whatever) right away. GF was playing a role so very different from her GH character Laura. She was playing Genevieve…a PERFECTLY FLAWED character!!!!! And, I (also) liked Jack and Genevieve as a couple. But, sadly, when I read that JFP (gag… Read more »

Hey Jay! Great to read your thoughts! I, too, have been a huge fan of Genie Francis all along. To this day, Tony Geary has a cushy position (with much time off, ability to change dialogue on a whim, etc.) at GH, and the producers never offered Genie this deal. For many years, she wanted to come back, but GH didn’t want her. You know, Sonny and the Mob had to be the main emphasis, according to the enigmatic powers that be. From what I read, Maria Arena Bell, former Y&R producer, created the role of Genevieve for Genie. I… Read more »

James…hey, bro!!!!! Dude…I (also) HATE bullies!!!!! And…I’ve survived LOTS OF BULLYING over the years. I’ve been bullied by meanies, haters, teachers (from high school days), so-called friends, ex-boyfriends (yep…I’m gay.) and (even!!!!!) relatives. But, trust me…emotionally speaking, I have a VERY TOUGH SKIN!!!!! Remember that bullying storyline that Y&R did…you know…the one that featured Fen, Summer and that Jamie kid??? Well…the more that I watched that storyline unfold (or whatever), that’s HOW MUCH it kept (painfully) striking a chord with me. I am so glad that that storyline is now over.

Jay, first, I am so sorry to hear about your bullying experiences, and that they came from, not only peers, but teachers, relatives, and boyfriends. It’s shocking and unforgivable. I hope that you have healed from these experiences. In my case, it happened for 3 years in high school. Like you, I developed a “VERY TOUGH SKIN” as well as a sense of humor, which preserved my sanity. I also believe that these experiences molded me into who I am, and I like who I am. The memories and feelings associated with the bullying are always with me. People don’t… Read more »

Don’t get me wrong…I am all about forgiving. But forgetting…not so much. Nope. I remember the character of Karen. Character-wise, I liked Karen. And…from what I once heard, Nia Peeples (the actress who played the role) was a real SPITFIRE on the Y&R set…LOL!!!!! Character-wise, Karen was a HELLUVA LOT BETTER than that Tyra chick.

Jay, so glad that you were able to forgive and that you are doing well. You are absolutely right: forgetting is not easy (if even impossible). Keep hanging in there, Friend!

I didn’t know any of that info about Nia Peeples. And to think they already had to deal with that behavior from Victoria Rowell. No, I didn’t like Tyra either. Funny that they have gone down that road again, with Neil and Devon fighting over the same woman…

Believe it or not, there are some Y&R characters I actually enjoy: Sharon, Jack, Kevin, for example.

Til next time, Brother!

jaybird369

James…check this out, bro:

When she was on Y&R, Nia Peeples (behind-the-scenes and all) was a real SPITFIRE in terms of fighting for the integrity (or whatever) of her Y&R character Karen. Supposedly, she used to BUTT HEADS with Maria Arena Bell (remember her???) because of it. Also…from what I’ve read about Nia Peeples over the years, Nia herself is a very nice person and LOTS OF FUN to work with. It’s just that…Nia is a very strong-willed person and all and she refuses to be pushed around. By anyone.

Until next time…deuces, bro.

Jamesj75

Jay, thanks for clarifying the information on Nia Peeples. I am all about being assertive and defending yourself! As I said, I always liked the character of Karen and her storyline with Neil. I also have a favorable opinion of Maria Arena Bell because (1) she is definitely preferable to JFP; and (2) she created a role for Genie Francis.

Take care, Brother…

James…hey, dude!!!!! Sometime yesterday, I remembered something else about Nia Peeples during her time on Y&R. Get this: In addition to butting heads with Maria Arena Bell, NP supposedly feuded with both Kristoff St. John (aka Neil) and Eva Marcille. You see, KSJ was good friends with MAB. And…Kristoff sided with MAB in her feud (or whatever) with NP. Then, from there, NP and KSJ started feuding themselves…I think. As for NP and EM and their feuding…EM didn’t get along with too many people during her time on the Y&R set (Nia included). Nia got along VERY WELL with the… Read more »

They need to make him a regular cast member and give him a major storyline, you know, something along the lines of, oh, I don’t know, maybe he’s struggling to come out as gay, he falls in love with Kevin, who also realizes he’s gay, but then his ex-lover comes back to Genoa City, and… Read more »

Before I forget, TV shows: I am totally sympatico with you on Laverne and Shirley; to this day, when someone makes a statement that would precede the arrival of Lenny and Squiggy, such as “You’d have to be a complete imbecile to do something like that,” I make comments and utterances that Lenny and Squiggy would make as they entered the room, biting on my hand… Read more »

Sorry for the delay, Jay! Please don’t hold it against me. Say, if I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?!?! 🙂 Thanks for the heads-up on Meredith Baxter. It’s good to hear that, and I’m sure she will be a great addition to the show. She will make Nicki’s storyline more interesting, I’m sure. I totally agree with you on GH’s Levi. The only good thing I can say is he is buff. The character is indeed annoying. I don’t understand why the soaps continue to produce annoying characters. I mean, I get the… Read more »

Hi there, Jay! I hope all is well! Today, brief snippets (for better or worse)… 🙂 First, I loved your scenario about your new GH character. I am definitely a fan! If only… Nice reading about your father. Nice that he also likes the old TV westerns. I like your Foreigner songs—definitely good stuff! Glad we’re on the same page about Epiphany. I think, however, that her character suffers from character development. And it’s not the actress’ fault. I mean, what can you do when you’re on air about 10 times a year. I think GH’s cast is way too… Read more »

Hello there, Jaybird! It’s cool we agree on so much regarding the soaps (JFP, B&B Hope, etc.). Don’t these programs use focus groups anymore? Someone needs to tell the producers what is working and what is not working because they are not figuring it out for themselves. Of course, in the case of JFP, SHE is the problem, and she does whatever she wants (coddle her favorite actors, kill off a long-time fan favorite character, etc., etc., etc.). Thanks for sharing the funny dialogue from Hot in Cleveland! Hysterical! You are so right about Ty. You know, “Ty and Jay”… Read more »

Him—awesome, but underrated follow-up to Rupert Holmes’ smash, Escape (The Pina Colada Song); and #10. Into the Night by Benny Mardones—love that song, and it had 2 separate chart runs (1980 and 1989). it’s a great song! And there are some songs I like to have fun with, by changing the gender.

Not his age, mind you. Hello, Continuity! He should have more bullet holes in his skin than ex-girlfriends! Speaking of GH, I am trying to like the Franco character, but I just can’t.

Hey Jay!! Thanks for all the interesting info! I enjoy reading your song lists! I totally agree with you regarding Nikolas and his son! I can’t stand either one of them. The kid, as an actor, is a ham. And, sorry, but no real kid would act this way… It’s a sad state of affairs when we see more of this kid than we do of Monica… As for Nikolas, he is another one of these holier-than-thou creeps.

Y-A-Y!!!!! 1987=More and more, I kept noticing a growing trend: I kept noticing people (older than me) getting more and more tired of the bar/singles scenes and therefore wanting to find that VERY SPECIAL SOMEONE to have a relationship/life with.

Other music: I like your selections for opening TV music. I guess I would be inclined to list (primarily) shows that were my favorites; so in that vein: 1. Lost in Space 2.

Wow! You said a mouthful, Friend! As always, enjoyable, funny, riveting: what you wrote, not necessarily what I saw on the soaps! BTW, did you catch your man Austin on Friday’s Y&R? I think you would enjoy it… You are not too harsh about JFP; you are on the money! Don’t the soaps do focus groups anymore? Don’t they read or hear viewers’ comments? Don’t they check out the message boards for soap sites, such as this fine one? Someone in the CBS/Sony hierarchy must know the prevailing attitudes regarding JFP as well as her notorious track record… “Cinderella” was… Read more »

James, James, James…yep…Paul McCartney&Michael Jackson reference ala 1983. I went there…LOL!!!!! Right away…Soap Time… 1. Yep…I did see yesterday’s episode of Y&R (9/19). As for Austin=Y-U-M!!!!! Of course, a VERY SHIRTLESS Austin, Austin/Jack/Nick together in one room (My friend…you know WHERE I am going with that…HEH HEH HEH!!!!!) and (most of all) an ERASED Summer would have been EVEN BETTER!!!!! But I’ll take whatever I can get. 2. What did you think of the very end of the Y&R episode…you know…where NuPhyllis F-I-N-A-L-L-Y got out of that damned hospital bed, room and building?????

Hey there, Jay! I hope you are doing well! My comment about Farrah was in error. She didn’t really have any feuds with costars. She just left the show after one season; I just assumed there was bad blood, so I was wrong. And I did see that Jacklyn Smith was a supportive friend to Farrah’s until the end. That is inspiring… The AMCorner thing is very random and thus not an optimal place. Here works fine… Happy to see Y&R Phyllis on her feet and with a mission. Good God, let her talk already! Let GH’s NuJason talk already!… Read more »

Kate Jackson, on the other hand…DIFFERENT STORY ALTOGETHER!!!!! Dude…check it out… 1. After Farrah left CA at the end of Season 1, Kate was ESPECIALLY UPSET about Farrah leaving. 2. When Cheryl Ladd came aboard at the beginning of Season 2, Kate IMMEDIATELY DISLIKED Cheryl right away. And, some days, Kate would speak/talk to Cheryl. Somewhat. While other days, Kate flat-out REFUSED to speak to Cheryl. 3. Poor Jaclyn Smith felt so caught in the middle. I… Read more »

They went to Texas (Houston) to a ceiling fan expo/seminar (meet-and-greet social also included). Lorraine needed someone to take care of/to watch over the house and to feed their animals (the 3 dogs and the 3 cats). Yep…a full house full of animals…LOL!!!!!

So looking forward to fireworks via Phyllis and Sharon. I liked reading your fave Michael Jackson songs. I’m with you on “She’s Out of My Life,” an underrated gem.

Hey Jay! Funny stuff from Joan Rivers. Thanks for sharing. Last night, SNL did a skit with host Sarah Silverman playing Joan in heaven, telling jokes at a roast. Some of it was clever, although Silverman stumbled over some of her lines. As the show went to commercial, a picture of Joan with 1933-2014 was shown—very classy… You are correct about “You’re the One.” It was initially released in 1989 on the CD Lovelines. It was featured earlier in the TV movie about Karen Carpenter. I remember watching that movie, of course, and realizing that there were a couple of… Read more »

But I digress… To me, the real secret is that Sharon virtually caused Phyllis’ fall down the stairs.

Hey Jay! Just a short note to let you know that I totally agree with your soaps assessment, and I like all your music picks! And I totally get your stance on “I’m So Excited.” Two other weird connections to your song choices: 1. “Suddenly” by Billy Ocean was the first song I ever recorded (karaoke). 2. “Nobody” is my sister’s signature karaoke song. So, again, great minds… Something I find peculiar about music is how one song we didn’t care for when it was first released morphs into a song we enjoy, and vice versa.

On other matters: your list of dumb female characters is one with which I find agreement. One actress I also really enjoy is Eileen Davidson. It is so bizarre to see her on both DOOL and Y&R in the same day! I think that, because her DOOL character is so villainous and crazy, Y&R is adjusting her character to approach those qualities.

OK, Stud! Let’s get it going! No, I do accept and like your suggestion about Julian and Tracy. It would be a great match. I was making a joke about them being related. To be honest, the way shows are written, I have lost all comprehension of who is related to whom: Let’s face it! Plotlines are changed, surprise offspring spring up, and paternity tests are faked. To this day, I’m not sure who is Summer’s father on Y&R… It’s all relative, I suppose… You are also right about B&B’s Brooke. She has worked her way through the relatives! To… Read more »

Well hey there, James!!!!! Dude…right off the bat, I gotta tell ya’: Yesterday was N-O-T a good day for me. At all.

But, yes, I am loving the involvement of Eve and JJ. Trust me, round 2 is just around the corner!

Dude…I gotta tell ya’: Call me c-r-a-z-y but (to me) A-N-Y SHIRTLESS H-U-N-K on a soap makes WAY MORE SENSE than a soap character doing and/or saying something TOTALLY STUPID.

Anyway, one of my FAVE moments in the movie was when the characters of John and Russell (played by Bill Murray and R.I.P. Harold Ramis) went to um, enlist/sign up. Check this out… Army Recruiter: “Are either of you two homosexuals?” John: “You mean, like, flaming or…?” Army Recruiter: “Well, fellas…it’s a standard question.

I am curious as to the possibility of Austin being a miraculous match as a liver donor. Although far fetched, it might be the ‘golden carrot’ to save his bacon after shooting Paul accidentally. They already have Avery deciding to help him, meaning Austin (as of the Jun 19th show), so it occurred to me that something equally far fetched could happen in that Austin is discovered to be a coincidental match and a ‘more than willing’ donor as a means to demonstrate he truly is the ‘good guy’ Summer professes him to be.

This whole storyline of Dylan being Paul’s son is so annoying.

General Hospital was ruined by JFP with her tunnelvision focus on the Mob via Sonny, Jason (Steve Burton), and Carly. So now she wants Y&R to focus mainly on Steve Burton’s character. Burton is an overrated actor: he really doesn’t show much range or depth, just a cardboard caricature. And, guess what, Eric Braeden won’t put up with this crap for… Read more »

As far as I’m concerned, Michael Muhney can act CIRCLES (and beyond) around that one-dimensional muscle-head Steve Burton ANYTIME!!!!! Also, here are 2 more reasons as to why I DO NOT LIKE JFP…AT ALL: In the early ’90s, JFP killed off the beloved character of Maureen Bauer from GL. Then, later on and in the mid-’90s, that JFP witch killed off the character of Frankie Frame…my all-time FAVORITE character from AW. Bottom Line Here: Y&R needs a MAJOR OVERHAUL…PERIOD!!!!!

And one thing jumps out at me… OMG! Did you see the last scene of the last episode of DOOL?!?! Where the pro baseball… Read more »

James aka SWEET, SWEET DUDE!!!!! What’s up, my man????? Once again, I’m up… Dude…I need to clear something up with you. Your previous post (from 11/26) is still there. It’s just that…long story short, when I went to reply to it, I ended up having to press (or whatever) ‘reply’ from another one of your previous posts in order post a new reply to you. Anyway, I hope that that clears things up here. Thanks!!!!! BTW, you and I each did choose “Half Breed” as our favorite Cher song. HALLO!!!!! LET’S GET S-O-A-P-Y: 1. Dude…I am SO SUPER-EXCITED here!!!!! The… Read more »

Hello there, Jay! I, too, thought I had lost your last post. Anyway, so glad we can connect, 🙂 I like reading your fave Cher and Nicholson movies. I am not a big moviegoer, but I once in a while, I will see a movie in the theatre. SOD YAY! I, too, am looking forward to the Best/Worst issues of SOD. It’s always an enjoyable read. By the way, not to toot my own horn, but I have had 2 comments printed in that magazine, although they don’t print full names, only initials and city. Also, I sent in a… Read more »

Continuing on… HUMOR: So you and I are both funny guys (insert joke here) and we both like comedy. For you, comedy is “central” (roasts, Midnight, etc.). Anyway, you mentioned B&B’s Thanksgiving episode and liking what Charlie said to Pam. And I wanted to expound on that. I like them, and I like soap characters who are there for comedic effect. It has been said that, in many ways, comedy is harder than drama for an actor. And I get that. It’s all about timing… I have definitely enjoyed comedic soap characters and witty banter. Opal on AMC was a… Read more »

Hello there, Jay! So much to digest (including soap opera digest)! WHAT YOU WANT! I like your criteria for what you want in a “fella!” And I am with you, Brother. A warm, sincere smile is invaluable. And a sense of humor is vital; laughing is so good for us. We should do it as much as we can… Jaybird, I also like reading about the pickup lines that have come your way. As for me, at the moment, I am channeling Joan Rivers: no one gives me pickup lines anymore. Are you kidding? They see these wrinkles, and all… Read more »

ANY WAY I WANT IT: Dude…if you like my, um, criteria for what I want in a FELLA, well…check out some of my, um, other personal criteria: I REALLY DIG a fella that has a deep, dark and husky voice…HELL YEAH, BABY!!!!! Also, sensitivity and understanding is a M-U-S-T for me!!!!! Another thing: This may be messed up but I kinda like it when a fella gets PISSED OFF…this proves to me that the fella is N-O-T afraid to get emotional at the drop of a hat!!!!! And speaking of emotional, I think that it’s SO SWEET… Read more »

James, Thanks, dude…THANKS for the birthday wishes!!!!! It is much appreciated!!!!! Now…get this: It looks like I WON’T be going to the casino for my birthday this year after all. Here’s what happened: A few days ago, I did some checking. Supposedly, I didn’t visit the casino enough earlier in the year. So, therefore, they weren’t able to mail to me my usual casino birthday card ($15 doubled to $30 on my birthday). GRRRRR!!!!! So you know what????? Earlier today, me and my certain BFF Johanna took a little ride to one of those roadside Truck Stop Casinos here in… Read more »

Well, it sounds like you have had a nice birthday already! BTW, when I left the birthday greeting, it was after midnight my time (and thus Dec. 6th), but it shows up as 10 PM on Dec. 5th. My intent was to offer you a birthday greeting on your actual birthday. And breaking even at a casino is not bad… My other intent: when I thought you might be going to the Crystal Palace Bingo, my intent was to call the place this evening and hopefully someone there would be able to find Jay, the birthday boy, so that I… Read more »

Anyway, I appreciate it. Thanks!!!!! BTW…Oh those time differences…LOL!!!!! Yep. A little while ago, I called Crystal Palace Video Bingo. And I briefly talked to one of the cashiers/employees there. She told me that she hadn’t heard anything about that. But…she also told me that if anything does happen with that…they’ll probably be putting a flier/notice up one day real soon. Anyway, one night this upcoming week, I’ll be going to… Read more »

I still promise later to write about your last post on soaps, etc. But before then… Let me be more direct: part of wanting to reach you at one of these places by phone is that we could exchange e-mails… If you’re at a smaller-type establishment and it’s easy enough to find Jay, I mean Jason, and talk with you live!!

Okay, Jason, I’m up! Where to begin… Let’s start with music: I don’t think I am as versed as you are with regard to music videos. I definitely like the songs you have chosen, even though I might be not familiar with the accompanying music video. That being said, here are my TOP 5: 1. Wicked Game by Chris Izaak (my go-to karaoke song): very sexy 2. Take on Me by A-ha: innovative 3. Thriller by Michael Jackson: iconic 4. Like a Prayer by Madonna: dramatic 5.

As both stepmother and stepson, Barbra and Josh have never gotten along. And, old Babs has played the role of ‘interfering stepmother’ more than once. Bottom Line: Josh H-A-T-E-S being around Babs aka ‘stepmom’ PERIOD!!!!! 2. Example as to w-h-y Josh and Barbra DO NOT get along: A while back, when Josh was hired to star in the movie W.

It’s from 6:00PM to 10:00PM. BTW, if you want, you can try and call me while I’m there.

Hello there, Jason! Thanks for the nudge; again, a busy week… So my information about your bingo place was accurate after all! It sounds like a fun time! 🙂 Thanks for the heads-up about SOD! I will check it out… Interesting stuff about Barbra and family. I was aware of most of it. One other piece of info: I bought her new “Partners” CD, which includes a nice duet with her son. With regard to Jason and Josh, some people just can’t take a compliment. I’m a fan of compliments: both sides of the equation! JAYSON’S RANTS: All so true!… Read more »

I cannot stand the thought of Hillary and Mr stand up guy, Neil, being married. She would be better off with Devon, and when did Neil stop caring about, and putting his family first. Cain and Lilly want to make me puke, and Jack and Kelley want to make me gag. Chloe being off in some institutution puts too much focus on insignificant characters. The next thing coming is Billy and Adam’s widow in the sack, also a mistake. Why all this sudden bring back of Christine. She is allwaays so self absorbed.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
